Baby Park 2050, 2018
Creative Art Works
Acrylic latex paint on concrete
This mural in Baby Park was painted with local youth volunteers from adjacent Queensbridge Houses. Creative Art Works’ final design was based off a community survey conducted in partnership with Jacob A. Riis Settlement House. Nearly 200 youths and seniors from Queensbridge Houses responded to the survey that resulted in this mural, which represents a possible future for LIC.
